Manage configurations

Last Updated: Apr 04, 2018

After you create a configuration item, you can use the configuration in the code. You will be using the ACM console frequently to edit and change configurations. You can search for, view, edit, and delete configurations in the ACM console.

Search for configurations

The ACM console supports searching for a configuration using the Data ID, Group ID, or a combination of both.

To search for a configuration, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to the ACM console, and select the Region as needed in the upper-left corner.

  2. Select Configurations in the left-side navigation pane of the console. Enter the information you want to search for, and click the Search button.

  3. After the desired configuration is located, you can view the details of the configuration, or change or delete the configuration, as shown in the following figure.

View configuration details

Click Details in the search result to view detailed information about a specific configuration.

Edit configurations

In the search result, click Edit to go to the editing page.

ACM offers the following advanced features on the configuration editing page.

Feature Description Usage
Format verification Provides syntax verification for JSON or XML format so as to reduce problems caused by syntax format issues. Check the corresponding Configuration Format radio button to select the format of the text to be edited.
Comparison of changes ACM supports comparing changes when a changed configuration is submitted for publishing. Check the changes prior to publishing to reduce misoperations. After the configuration is changed, click Publish to open the comparison dialog box.
Beta Publish An error in key configuration changes may cause a major fault, so it is recommended to publish the changed configurations to a few servers for verification first. If no problem is found, you can push the changed configurations to all. In this way, you can minimize the impact of any change errors. Check the Beta Publish radio button, and enter the IP address of the server for beta publish (enter the public IP for a local test).

Delete configurations

Click Delete to delete a configuration.
